A Day At The MTA Roadeo Competition

Last year my mother in law invited my family and me to an event called “Roadeo” held by the MTA of NYC.

I don’t work for the MTA or care for the delays their services gives us at times so waking up early for an event like this was a no go at first. I had no expectations for this and I learned I was wrong when we arrived late afternoon last year missing almost all of it.

My kids were upset and so was I, I vowed to make it early this year and we did just that on Saturday, Sept 16th!

How To Have Fun With Your Kids While Injured

I injured my leg…

I didn’t do it crossing anyone over or dunking like Lebron, I can’t jump anyway.

I took a bad step while running up the court and boom, I was down for two weeks with a severe case of plantar fasciitis. It basically felt like I was constantly stepping on a lego but multiply the pain by 100.

The pain sucked but the thought of not being able to do things with my kids sucked even more.

Reflections Of A Dad: Fatherhood Is A Privilege

Fatherhood is a Privilege

I put my daughter to bed 5 nights out of the week.

I turn off the overhead light, turn on the lamp, put her now 19 month old self in her crib, go and microwave her almond milk with a pinch of turmeric, give her her three kisses, and grab my tote bag and head home. Those 15–20 minutes are some of the best minutes I get throughout my day.

Getting Your Kids 1st Lemonade Stand Running With Corey Mccoy

Ever since I was a young boy my dad would always teach me about money some how without boring me and I try to do the same with my kids!

I was the kid that sold candy in school, not because I wanted to make a profit but because I was tired of sharing all my candies lol!

One thing I wish we would have done and I look forward to doing with my own kids is setting up a Lemonade Stand!

I reached out to community member Corey Mccoy who has a 7 year old daughter for advise on starting out because sometimes all we dads ever need is to see someone else doing it! Sometimes that’s enough to get us started and he was gracious enough to hook us up! Thanks G

Peep game below and get started! Learn while doing!
